IN BRIEF - China, new growth market for Ireland's seafood exports

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
Monday, May 13, 2019

DUBLIN - China has become a new growth market for Ireland's seafood exports, revealed a report obtained by Xinhua on Sunday.

The report, prepared by BIM (Irish Sea Fisheries Board in English), a state agency responsible for developing the Irish marine fishing and aquaculture industries, showed that Ireland exported a total of EUR 47 million (about USD 53 million) worth of seafood products to China in 2018, up by 68 percent compared with a year ago.

The growth in the Chinese market stood in sharp contrast with the performance of the other major export markets for the Irish seafood products.

IN BRIEF - Mowi ASA: Exercise of senior executive share options/purchase of own shares

NORWAY
Monday, June 17, 2019

The Board of Directors of Mowi awarded 1.175 million options under its senior executive share option scheme with effect from 2015 to the current participants in the option scheme. The option scheme forms an important part of Mowi's long-term remuneration policy for such senior executives. The number of options shall be reduced if the profit through exercise of options in a year exceeds two times the fixed annual salary of the option holder. Accordingly, the number of options has been reduced to 485,743 options to comply with this provision.

On 17 June 2019, participants in Mowi's senior executive share option scheme exercised 485,743 options in Mowi, corresponding to 485,743 shares at a strike price of NOK 77.52 per share.

On the same date Mowi purchased 485,743 own shares at a price of NOK 203.81 per share to settle its obligation to deliver the shares. The shares were purchased in accordance with the authorisation granted at the annual general meeting on 29 May 2019. Following these transactions Mowi still holds zero treasury shares.

IN BRIEF - Cyclone batters fishing hub but veers away from Indian coast

INDIA
Thursday, June 13, 2019

VERAVAL - A cyclone in the Arabian Sea battered an Indian fishing hub with heavy wind, wave and rain Thursday and was forecast to still bring dangerous weather even as it veered away from the western coast.

The India Meteorological Department says Cyclone Vayu, the season's second major storm and named after the Hindi word for wind, has jogged west, skirting the coast of the western state of Gujarat and unlikely to hit it head on as previously forecast. Pakistan warned of rough seas and dangerous heat, though the cyclone wasn't expected to directly hit the port city of Karachi.

In anticipation of the storm, rescue workers evacuated nearly 300,000 people, taking a cue from Cyclone Fani, which came ashore on India's eastern coast in May, killing 34 people in India and 15 in neighboring Bangladesh.

IN BRIEF - Conservationists raise alarm over wild fish killed inside B.C. salmon farms

CANADA
Thursday, June 13, 2019

A conservation charity said it's concerned by what it calls a "growing trend" of wild fish killed by the salmon farming industry on British Columbia's coast.

Stan Proboszcz, science advisor with Watershed Watch Salmon Society, said nine times as many wild fish were reported inside open-net pen farms in 2017 compared with 2011.

"We saw quite a staggering increase in incidental catch over the years," he said. "Something's wrong here if we're seeing this large increase in wild fish being killed inside salmon farms."

The society crunched the number of "incidental catches" self-reported by industry to government during harvests, fish transfers and farm relocations.

IN BRIEF - Early sockeye run greets combat fishermen on Russian River opener

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

COOPER LANDING, Alaska - In the three days leading up to the opening of the Kenai and Russian River, close to 8,000 salmon passed the Department of Fish and Games fish counter in the Russian River.

During the same period leading up to the opening date last season, fewer than 200 fish had been tallied at the same spot.

Many anglers who scouted spots late Monday night were able to quickly catch their limit of three sockeye shortly after midnight, and the good fishing continued through Tuesday morning.

By early Tuesday afternoon, crowds at on the river thinned as many anglers caught their limit in a short period. However, sections of the river near parking areas would still be best described as 'combat fishing'.

IN BRIEF - Fisheries outcomes maximized through traditional practice

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

A new study led by a University of Rhode Island doctoral student and published in the Journal of Applied Ecology has found a possible solution to one of the biggest conservation and livelihood challenges in the marine realm.

Paul Carvalho, along with URI Assistant Professor Austin Humphries and colleagues from several other institutions, found that fishing grounds with areas that are closed to fisheries but are periodically harvested are better than fishing grounds with permanent, no-take marine protected areas.

IN BRIEF - Renewables anchoring tech could be used for aquaculture

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

If successful, the initiative could help to promote the sustainable development of fish farming by allowing new sites to be located further out to sea.

Salmon farming critics claim coastal operations damage wild fish stocks, particularly through the spread of sea-lice, although the industry insists its impact on the environment is minimal.

IN BRIREF - Invasive pink salmon could return to Scottish rivers

UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

A non-native species of fish could return to Scottish rivers in large numbers in 2019.

Pink salmon are native to Pacific Ocean waters but have spread to parts of northern Europe after being released into rivers in Russia in the 1960s.

Fisheries Management Scotland said 2017 saw "unprecedented numbers" of pink salmon in UK rivers.

It said due to the fishes' two-year life cycle the salmon could be seen again this year.

IN BRIEF - EU executive says - be ready for 'very possible' no-deal Brexit

EUROPEAN UNION
Wednesday, June 12, 2019

BRUSSELS - The European Commission on Wednesday said a no-deal Brexit was “very much possible” as it updated its contingency preparations and told countries, companies and people to be ready for the expected economic fallout.

The European Union’s executive said it would pay particular attention in coming months to crucial areas including citizens rights, financial services, transport and fisheries, ahead of Britain’s departure from the bloc, now due on Oct.31.

Its latest review of the EU’s no-deal plans comes as Britain’s Conservative Party is picking a new prime minister to replace Theresa May, defeated by her inability to pass through the UK parliament the deal she secured with the bloc seven months ago.
